Water loves to pass through limestone, and much of New Zealand’s north island is made of limestone. And guess what? New Zealand gets a healthy amount of rainfall.
One day, while touring about on the state highway between Whakapara and Kawakawa, we stopped to rest the overheated car we were driving. I happened to see a little sign on the side of the road that said something about a cave. I thought: cave = cool, so off we went for an unexpected and delightful trip through a mountain at the Kawiti Caves.
My shot is not nearly as nice as the one on the official website – check it out! And if you are ever in New Zealand, and happen to be on that highway, you should stop and bask in the glow of worm turds. Though, there are lots of other places to do that. The Waitomo Caves in the center of the North Island offer a more extended visit with the underground critters.
